We are NYAIS accredited and offer a child-centered curriculum for pre-school through 6th grade. Our mission: Nurturing Joyful Learners. The Susan Odell Taylor School for Children offers an exceptional educational choice to families with children in preschool through sixth grade. Within our community of learners, children are given the opportunity to participate in an engaging educational experience, allowing each child to confidently learn to their potential. The school is an independent school led by a Board of Trustees composed of parents and community leaders. The Board of Trustees, along with the children, their families, our faculty, and local community combine to make us a unique and engaging school serving the greater Capital Region. Our dynamic approach to educating children within a caring, nurturing environment is our hallmark.


Our name-sake, Susan Odell Taylor, taught at The Children’s School at Emma Willard for seven years. She was a remarkable teacher who made her classroom a dynamic learning experience and she freely shared her gifts and talents with her students, parents and colleagues. Susan's classroom was a vibrant exciting place to be. Cooking lessons, science experiments, art projects - no one passing by could resist the energy and a strong desire to be a part of that day's lesson. Who knew learning could be fun too? Susan did! Sue died in 1997 after a valiant struggle with breast cancer. At the Susan Odell Taylor School for Children, we continue Susan's passion to educate young children, and inspire their love of learning.
